Australian political thread in Politics and World Events Posted October 6, 2021 Such a boys club pick. And yes, the man is a career conservative who is a fervent catholic and doesn’t even believe in contraception. BUT THE ECONOMY! The false narrative of our LNP being economic warriors wins again. I wasn’t a fan of Gladys but the personality cult that surrounds her is unbelievable here in Sydney. I’m astounded by the amount of gay men who stan for her, that’s what you get with Murdoch media and her unedifying appearances on the Kyle & Jackie O radio show. It seems pseudo intellectual when they say they like her without having any concept that she was the leader of the Conservative party and under investigation for corruption, but this is the scary world we live in. The same people don’t seem to question why a right wing woman who is unmarried and childless is considered ‘independent’ but someone like Julia Gillard had her partners sexuality questioned, was called ‘heartless’ for not having children, and indeed her own leadership abilities were called into question for the very reason she never had children. Anyhow rant over!
